FRAMINGHAM (11/11/2003) - The U.S. General Accounting Office documented how easy it is to acquire a fraudulent driver's license because of the Social Security Administration's limitations to verify information. According to the GAO, in one month, one state issued driver's licenses and identification cards to 41 individuals who used the names, Social Security numbers and dates of birth of persons listed as deceased. Undercover GAO investigators used fictitious licenses to purchase firearms, avoid airport screeners and enter federal buildings. The GAO recommends that Congress create a national data-sharing system for driver records.
